Small Business Insurance For Data Loss and Security Breach

Did you know that you could purchase insurance for data loss? Should you?

It depends. I believe in educating our clients about their risks as I see them, not just computer risks, but all of their vulnerabilities. I think that in our industry there is a surprising lack of regulation, especially given the critical information we see everyday.

I recommend that you give quite a bit of thought to your IT person, going so far to do a background check on them. It’s a reasonable and safe step until we can work for better certifications and regulations.

Here are a few certification authorities that test for technical knowledge. But there are NO recognized authorities to test for soft skills and general decency.

CompTIA (A+ and Network+ certifications)

Microsoft Certifications

Cisco
